***STUDENTS IN HOME EDUCATION DO NOT HAVE TO TAKE ANY ASSESSMENTS.***
Taking the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS), Florida Assessment of Student Thinking (F.A.S.T.) or End-of-Course Exam (EOC) is one of 5 options for satisfying the annual evaluation for home education students. Home education students must pre-register with the Home Education Office to take these exams. Please see the registration deadlines.
If a home education student enrolls in a public school within the School District of Palm Beach County they will not need to take the EOC to earn credit, except for the Algebra 1 EOC (for diploma requirement) according to Florida Statute 1003.4282 (7). If a student takes a second semester of an EOC course in public school they will be required to take the EOC to earn credit if they return to public school.
